I’ve stayed away from watching the Oscar awards for the past several years. Why? Simply because they’ve gone too political lately. I’ve been boycotting the Oscars for a long while and decided to watch last night. I was a little worried that the Oscars would go political again this year. They did go “political” but not as bad as in the past. Spike Lee talked trash about Trump even though he didn’t bring up Trump’s name but the Trump bashing wasn’t that bad last night. It was a pretty calm show for the most part.
I was surprised the Oscars opened the show with Queen performing. That was actually great. I’m a huge fan of Queen but not a huge fan of Adam Lambert fronting them, though. Don’t like Adam’s singing but Queen performed good.
I wanted to watch the Oscars last night ’cause I wanted to see if “Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse” was going to win Best Animated Picture (which it did) and wanted to see if “Green Book” wins Best Picture (and it did). I’m glad Mahershala Ali won for his role in “Green Book” too. I’m also happy for Remi Malek for winning for “Bohemian Rhapsody” as I also loved that film. The winners went to the right people and I was happy how the results turned out to be.
As for the live performances go, I loved Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga performing together. I thought that was really great and I do love the song “Shallow”. I have the “Star Is Born” soundtrack on my Ipod. It’s a great soundtrack.
The Oscars proved last night that they don’t need a host to run a show. While it wasn’t a bad show last night, the fashion on the celebrities seem to be getting worse each year, though.
I haven’t watched the Oscars in a long while and it was interesting to see how the Oscars are now.
I’m just happy that “Green Book” won BEST PICTURE and glad “Black Panther” didn’t get it. That’s the best thing that happened at the Oscars last night. “Green Book” really was a great film and it is Best Picture worthy. I saw that film in theater and loved it. Plan on getting the film on Blu Ray soon ’cause it comes out on Blu Ray next week on March 5th. I’m definitely picking up a copy.
I thought the Oscars was pretty good last night and they’re slowly getting better. Glad I watched.
